Beekeeping Resources and Reading

Here are some useful books about beekeeping to get you started!

The Backyard Beekeeper - Revised and Updated: An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Keeping Bees in Your Yard and Garden
The Beekeeper's Handbook
Keeping Bees And Making Honey
Natural Beekeeping: Organic Approaches to Modern Apiculture, 2nd Edition

And one book not on beekeeping but about the bees themselves, a fantastic reference for understanding them and their life cycle:

The Biology of the Honey Bee

A few books which are about bees in general (not beekeeping in particular) and filled with fascinating information:

Honeybee Democracy
The Hive: The Story of the Honeybee and Us

The guide we used to learn about and try meadmaking:

The Compleat Meadmaker : Home Production of Honey Wine From Your First Batch to Award-winning Fruit and Herb Variations

Beekeeping Course at the University of Minnesota

If you are in the midwest, I highly recommend taking a course offered by the University of Minnesota which is an amazing crash course in beginning beekeeping tailored to northern climates - MN Bee Lab
